I think I understand.
What you needed was more naked adolescent and adult male swimmers on the beach.
Boys/girls tend to want to dress modestly/immodestly when they see men/women dressing modestly/immodestly.
Let me give you some examples:
////immodesty in boys////
A younger boy could be impressed when seeing an older male nude or seminude.
On another forum, two contributors remember seeing secondary school boys running cross-country shirtless and thought that the boys looked tough and masculine.
They both looked forward to running cross-country shirtless.

James grew up in Great Britain in the 80’s, and happened to notice immodestly dressed adult males.
He saw shirtless men washing cars, mowing lawns, painting houses, and playing football. He specifically remembers a shirtless passenger on a 15-mile railroad trip.
Consequently, he enjoyed riding his bike in warm weather, wearing only a swim suit.

On the other hand, a boy made to swim naked in the presence of a younger girl relative, who is not naked, could feel childish.
When a boy is old enough to dress, undress, and bathe without his mother’s assistance, he could regard it as an affront to his masculinity to be nude under the supervision of a woman a generation older than himself.
For this reason, Lyons believes that “nudity in front of a female swim instructor could have hurt a boy’s pride in his emergent manhood.”
////immodesty in girls////
Immodesty could also be a mark of maturity for girls.
When the Olympics were held in London one year, a group of school girls were impressed by the sight of women athletes wearing halter tops and shorts.
They campaigned unsuccessfully for permission for similar freedom in phys ed class.

In the days in which videocassettes were the rage, Karen checked out what she thought was a Care Bears video.
When her 4-year-old daughter Sally saw the video, Karen realized that it was a mislabeled Playboy striptease video.
That made Sally want to dance like the women in the video.
Because of the “emotional distress” which resulted, Karen sued Blockbuster Video.
She considered the defendant responsible for “medical and/or counseling expenses.”
The judge, however, did not agree.

Alexis, who used to work in the fashion industry, speaks about immodesty in fashion design for little girls.
According to Alexis, 9-year-old girls look up to 13-year-old girls, and the industry began to notice this in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
The trend in dance wear subsequently spread.
Alexis comments, “if mothers didn’t allow this crap, it wouldn’t translate to kids’ clothes!”

At first, pro basketball players wore minimal shorts.
During the Seventies and Eighties, boys also wore minimal shorts.
But then Michael Jordan requested longer shorts, and by 1990, most of the other pro basketball players followed suit.
At the same time, boys also started wearing longer shorts.
A mere coincidence? I think not!
